Re: Photoshop CS5 with a new computer build

You need two or four sticks of RAM, not 3, for decent dual channel performance.

IIRC, some Photoshop functions depend on single core speeds mostly, so your extra cores don't help.  As has been said, Adobe's products don't use additional cores all the time.

You might also think about your GPU.  Some functions are GPU accelerated, but not all.

Adobe and Puget Systems both have good info on how to speed up Photoshop and Lightroom - what works, what doesn't.

Me?  Since I have dual screens, I just do something else while I wait.
